I don't know where I got this show, and unfortunately, there was no text file with it. It does appear to be from the same source as the one on archive.org. The source on archive is listed as a cassette master. Spectral analysis cleary reveals two analog generations, making this, most likely, a cassette master>>cassette rather than a cassette master source.
There were many rough trasitions between songs, most apparently from the stopping and starting of a tape machine. Most of these transitions were edited to make them less harsh.

"Hope you will believe what I say is true
Excellent fun sing along first set with the band in great spirits. The high lights include an excellent Tennessee Jed, a little cranking Big RR Blues, a superb El Paso, a perfect TLEO with Jerry singing and playing with that extra knowing conviction and a show stopping set ending PITB.
Set II looks fun on paper but the jam out of the Other One, which in its self is quite good, is not a raging as one might come to expect this year, but the set ending IKYR and Sugar Magnolia is quite rare and worthy of a spin.
Curious why these early '73 shows have this unusual mix, that is very heavy on the snare and tom tom's.
If any one has the inside scoop I would appreciate knowing.

A short time to be there...
Just another 5 star from 1973!!!!!
Interesting BOX OF RAIN- Phil does not go for the climax vocally but him and Donna have a great vocal run during the tune.
Interesting bit labeled Jam after TOO but the really good stuff starts, on this recording at least, on Rider. Beautiful Feelin' Groovy transition typical of China/Riders from this era. But, it's not everyday you see a TOO>Rider, especially with the FG jam.

Great show, great work
This has got some excellent grooves in it, especially the latter part of the second set.
Excellent job on the clean up too -- it sounds just great -- thanks Jay.

Mind Left Body
No Spanish Jam in the jam out of TOO, but a nice tease (one phrase) of Mind Left Body Jam at 04:35 to 04:45...
Great sound, too.

I reckon it's a solid show, but hardly mind-blowing. Kind of unusual 2nd set list.

Exellent both in performance and sound quality. Thanks Jay.

16 years old, first dead show for me and friend Stiffy--after show we hung around in stands and got to ask Weir why he cut his hair and talk to lesh, too. Every boys dream. The hair_was_a disappointment, believe me.

This May Be From 2nd Gen Cassette
And even with a little tape hiss, this is an omnipresent presentation of the Bertha process.
I had to scrunch down the bass eq's on Jimmy Row because it was making my speakers boil!
How one could produce such an effort from a 2nd gen cass is something that makes me weak in the knees merely considering.
Every song is essentially solid even from the get-go casting itself immortally into the Archipelago and stomach-upped cayman. Ooooh, such strokes! Sure to lure you into a chasm of glee.
In Playing Jerry hits each and every mark going so far down that scaled line that he re-determines space and time. He gets so carried away by his frenzy that he loses himself in the whimsy and flubs lyrics like a vaudevillian on his final stage, but recovers the muse and finishes with a flair. And that carries over into Promised and Bertha.
On Greatest he is just flooring it! Just letting it all go!
The second set blasts on and just doesn't let up. He'sGone>Truckin>Drumz>Space>OtherOne>Spanish>Rider. Ah, just too far flung. Gotta figure he was sporting that Strat and squeezing it and making it spout with Roy Buchanan-like harmonics. It is really just all too much.
This another epic GD performance well-captured by friend and foe alike. Teamwork!
One of the first Saturday night shows without the One More Saturday Night?
